Chris Wood's style of English folk appeals to a wide and varied audience. He has converted many an anti-folk fan with his blend of traditional and modern songwriting, and has been hailed by the Irish Times as 'the renaissance man of English folk'.
Often compared to Richard Thompson, his music explores the history of the English-speaking world alongside tales of modern life.
'Wood is an intimate storyteller, applying such nuance and gravitas to every phrase you are imperceptibly lured into his world' (Mojo Magazine)
